Hello! I'm Tom. I designed a game called Gunpoint, about rewiring things and punching people, and now I'm working on a new one called Heat Signature, about sneaking aboard randomly generated spaceships. Here's some more info on all the games I've worked on, here's the podcast I do, here are the videos I make on YouTube, here are some of the articles I wrote for PC Gamer, and here are two short stories I wrote for the Machine of Death collections.
Jepp: 1) Please keep critiquing games by building new ones :)...
Chris Kilgariff: Hey, This game needs to be a mobile phone...
Andrew: Just linked the book club to you, boosting your...
It was shown at GDC. If you’re as geeky as me, don’t click this link unless you demand proof – it’s mildly spoiling. The Scout’s been my favourite personality ever since the “I broke your stupid crap, moron” incident, so I can’t freakin’ wait.
Update: it’s probably going to be the week of the 10th, or the week after that. Valve Time, naturally.
C Livingston: Ooh, know what would be the coolest? If Valve released the Meet the Scout movie or the Meet the Pyro movie and it turned out, halfway through, that it was really the Meet the Spy movie. That'd be so boss.
Tom Francis: That would be boss. That would be boss HOG.
ImperialCreed: Seconded Chris. Any ETA for us plebs from your bossom buddies at Valve Tom?
Alek: Great news! It'll be late, of course, but whatever. It happens all the time.
Unrelated question: Pentadact, I'm not exactly expecting a yes, but have you ever personally played some Phoenix Wright games? It's a Nintendo DS Game about being a defense attorney and, well, defending innocent people in court cases. I think it might be your cup of tea (hur) so, I would recommend you try it when you get the chance.
Tom Francis: Two to three weeks, apparently. They want to get the French and German versions ready and put them all out at once this time.
Alek: Nope. I suspect it would, but I don't have a DS. I keep waiting for a time when there's not enough on PC to entertain me, and when I somehow feel I'm not spending enough of my life gaming. Then, I'll get a DS for Phoenix, a 360 for N+ and Crackdown, a PS3 for Little Big Planet, and a PS2 for Ico. I guess I could get a TV, too.
Alek: Ha, I suppose I see what you mean. I personally haven't sat down to watch something on TV (at least to watch something specific) in years. Just have the TV for the occasional round of Guitar Hero at a big party.
Usually I would say "emulators are your friend!" but their legality is questionable in most cases. And DS Emulators, in my personal experience, aren't that great anyway.
